DUE TO COVID-19, WE NOW PROVIDE CURBSIDE PICKUP OF GROCERIES ON FURBER LANE.
HOUSEHOLDS WILL RECEIVE PRE-PACKED BAGS OF DRY, COLD AND FROZEN FOODS AS WELL AS FRESH PRODUCE.
THERE IS NO NEED FOR A REFERRAL SIGNATURE OR INCOME ELIGIBILITY AT THIS TIME.
In the first quarter of 2021 we gave groceries to over 2,400 families providing food for 8,000 adults, children and seniors.
We had the largest day of need in the history of our pantry when we gave 261 families a full complement of fresh and dry groceries in just four hours.
While we receive donations from vendor partners and specific foods are free funded by the Massachusetts Emergency Food Assistance Program (MEFAP), every week we purchase fresh produce, dairy or eggs, grocery items, diapers and personal care products.
Local families greatly appreciate what they receive.
